However, I am nervous about starting them, because of all the side effects, such as weight gain and sexual dysfunction, as these have always been two major problems in my life. I am 17, and am also quite concerned about the sleeping and urinary problems, obviously, these problems I have now anyway with vulvodynia, and was wondering if anyone could give me any advice and help as I feel so alone. Thank you, Kayley.
